Playing is one of the most treasured memories of everybody’s childhood. Toys encourage children to grow, learn and a chance to hold on to their naivety and innocence. We at Crowder’s offer some of the finest creative and educational toys available in the UK.
Why are toys important for children?
Toys allow children to learn, imagine and create. After birth children learn how to walk, talk, run, eat and what is right and wrong. They discover other children just like them and through them, begin to emulate their actions and start developing their own personality.
The most interesting example of child development is how babies are born with no knowledge of gravity, what it is to fall or be dropped. Gravity becomes a challenge, all parents will have noticed that children deliberately throw things or drop them to the floor; it’s a learning process that all children go through.
Toys play a crucial role in child development, they give children the ability to learn safely, whether that is something as simple as discovering gravity or how write their name.
Toys and IQs – Does it really make a difference?
Toys encourage children to use their imagination and think which improves brain development and eventually results in higher IQ. Crowder’s offer toys such as puzzles and memory games which are a great stimulation for children and adults! These skills help children later on in life when they enter the educational system.
When playing with toys, children also gain confidence in themselves, being praised for doing something correctly is always great for self-esteem but for children it is essential for personal growth.
An example of his would be finishing a puzzle or building something they had imagined from scratch, this develops a sense of pride which encourages ambition and repetition. All parents have heard the words, “I can do this, look at me”, they begin to prove themselves to us that they are independent and are essential good children, our job is only to recognize their accomplishments and give them the confidence boost they deserve.
Children and the Environment – Is it really that scary?
Children are generally shy when it comes to experience the outside world, whether that is a visit to the local park or even their first day at school.
Toys are a great way for children to establish friendships with other children. When they cooperate with other children they learn important social skills and improve their own self-esteem! Playing with toys in a group helps children discover how others think and feel, they learn how to behave, share and many more!
Toys are just as important for parents as they are for children; they provide entertainment, exercise and a chance o use up some of their endless energy! It’s our job to provide them with the best possible learning environment; this is why Crowder’s offers so much variety in their children’s department.
